My husband spent the first 10 years of his life on the farm and is an avid hunter who loves the country. I on the other hand, spent most of my life in the big city. In 2009, we decided to look at a ranch property for sale just outside of Saint Jo. We started out from Arlington (where we had lived since 1983) and here goes: as we dropped down into the valley, a few miles from the ranch, my husband says “Man this is perdy!” I said,

“Perdy? Perdy is Macy’s in New York City.” To make a long story short, we bought the ranch and eventually moved out there from Arlington. After becoming familiar with the area and what it has to offer, we purchased the property at 301 S. Main Street to open up to visitors wanting an escape from the hustle bustle of the city.

Connie Dye purchased this house in 2011

The location of The Saint Jo House is great for families, small groups and business travelers alike.

Being just off US Highway 82, The Saint Jo House guests have easy access to the Red River Wine Trail, Ancient Ovens Restaurant, the Highway 82 Antique shops, small and big game hunting, the Red River Motorcycle Trails and more. Great for a weekend getaway or s stop along the way to Winstar Casino.

FABULOUS WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
This was a surprise birthday stay with my husband & friends. We were able to visit the 2 local wineries and Ancient Ovens. (A must do FOR YOUR BUCKET list)
I was extremely pleased with this house built in 1930 right off the main square of town. The house is beautifully decorated for up to 3 couples or 2 couples with a children's retreat area upstairs. The outside screen in porch is wonderful for your Monring Coffee. Connie made our day special greeting us with a Red Velvet cake & Balloons for our Birthday! We will definitely recommend this house and be back again! Thank you Connie!

DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS GEM!

Don't miss out on this gem!
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I always use VRBO when we travel and this is without question one of the best properties we have stayed at. Connie is a very sweet person and was so helpful and accommodating as we tried to get the details of our stay worked out. This is a great place to come and stay for a quiet, lazy weekend, or to come back to in the evening after day trips. We enjoyed walking around town in the mornings, coffee on the porch, cooking out on the deck and hanging out on the side porch. I cannot think of anything that Connie had not thought of to make our stay great. Water in the fridge and snacks on the counter was a nice touch. The kitchen has everything you need plus some, and everything in the house is nice quality. We are looking for an opportunity to return, soon!

EVERYTHING WE NEEDED AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5
This was a one night trip with my parents, husband, and in-laws to visit the local wineries and Ancient Ovens.
We were all so impressed with this house, which is literally a block away from the town's square. The house is well organized and perfect for 3 adult couples to sleep very comfortably. The sofa is comfortable to sleep on, and there is a nice air bed available as well. We loved hanging on the screen porch having morning coffee. My husband and I stayed in the upstairs loft bedroom, and although it was up high, it had a great little air conditioning unit that kept us nice and comfortable.
We did not use it , but there is a washer and dryer available as well.
The owner even had the fridge stocked with ice and bottled water. We would definitely recommend this house and hope to find an excuse to stay here again some day.

PERFECT ANNIVERSARY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Happy 47th Anniversary to us thanks to the wonderful Saint Jo House in Saint Jo, Texas. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Connie, the bubbly owner; and, a crystal ice bucket filled with ice and a wonderful bottle of champagne awaited us. What a wonderful touch to a special weekend. My husband and I have stayed in many, many bed and breakfasts in Texas, other states, and in Europe and found this home to be on the top of our list. The pictures on the internet do not do it justice. The decorating was western themed with contemporary thrown in - immaculate. Everything you could conceivably want was there - including a washer and dryer, and yes, even a computer with internet access. The kitchen appliances, dishes, stemware, everything was perfect. Attention to detail was very obvious. We booked the home for two nights, and the first day we were there we fell in love with the place and immediately booked a third night. Our trip to the Saint Jo House included a stop in Muenster where we purchased the most fantastic steaks ever to grill out one night. Fishers Market is a must stop. You will find German faire including the best beef, smoked sausage, bacon, and cheeses, and a lovely wine selection. A night out to Ancient Ovens was a must and we had a great time - a four course meal to die for. Another day we had lunch at the Lazy Heart Café which did not disappoint. The atmosphere was great. Can you tell we like to eat? We walked the square to burn off calories and shopped at the galleries, and museums- anything that was open. It was all good! At our age, we are too old to go schlepping around so we literally enjoyed the relaxation of the home and change of scenery. I spent an evening and the better part of one day just going through Connie's "old" cookbook collection and copying down recipes. We loved Connie, we loved the home, the serenity - everything. We will definitely be back and plan to spread the word to all our friends about this secret jewel in the little town of Saint Jo, Texas.

PERFECT GETAWAY PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
The Saint Jo House is a perfect weekend, or longer, getaway house to rent. You won't find a nicer property in this area for rent! The owners have painstakingly refurbished and updated this property. It has all the modern conveniences with old home charm. The owner met us at the property and walked us through it to show us where everything was and how everything worked. The home is furnished and equipped to live in. All you need to bring is what you would take to a hotel room or B & B. It is located walking distance to the town square where the Davis & Blevin's Gallery is located. Don't pass up the opportunity to visit this gallery. It is beautiful. The Blue Ostrich Winery, Arche' Winery and Ancient Ovens are all three an easy drive away. We did all three of these on Saturday May 4th and had an absolutely amazing time! There is a cafe located on the town square that you could eat breakfast and lunch Monday through Saturday but it is closed on Sunday. Breakfast on a Sunday morning is challenging. There is a gas station called the Pit Stop that a local told us had good breakfast burritos. Indeed it does! Stay at Saint Jo House. You won't be disappointed!
